I love my little Toni! But Miss T. has been in a funk of a mood lately (too many cold + dreary days makes for a sad senji). So I thought I would cheer her up and do a photo shoot. But all she wanted to do was lean up against me + do a backwards basenji snuggle. So that meant I had to be in the shoot too. Ick, I can't hold a candle next to my little top model's super cuteness!!!

Christmas Cuties!

Mom? Why is this thing on my head?

Yeah, she stuck one on my head too...

Let me have a closer look to see how to get that thing off.

Calvin Claus!

So if I wear this, I'm gonna get more presents, right?

Hopped up on holiday "cheer"!

note: Happy slept thru all the holiday photos + fun. :(

Presents! Presents! Presents! Mine! Mine! Mine!

oh yeah, Merry Christmas... Now where are more PRESENTS!!!

(despite the fact that ALL the dogs received presents, Calvin was the only one interested in opening them...And he did...for ALL the dogs!!!)

My strange lil' senji girl

I PROMISE I did not photoshop this picture. I was washing the floors (see how they shine?) and decided to pile all the dogs blankies, pillows, and beds on the couch. Well, I no sooner turn my back to start mopping and when I turn around I see that my little Toni has silently crawled up into her dog bed that I precariously balanced on the edge of the couch. She seems quite distraught by the new "location" of her bed yet WILL NOT get out of it. What will I do with my strange lil' senji girl???

Today I got a really nice "present" from Rick Christensen of Sublime Basenjis in Colorado. He sent me some pics of my Happy (now 18 years old + 8 days!) back when she was a LOT younger. She sure was DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! Hell, even as an old lady with her gray hairs, bumps + lumps, and droopy tail she is still the most beautiful dog on Earth to me! :)

A Happy Fantastic Birthday!!!

Today is the 18th Birthday of my muse, business partner, and soul-mate Miss Happy Fantastic Basenji Extraordinaire! And yes, 18 is REALLY old for a dog, it is like 100 in human years. I love my Happy and I am thankful for each day she is with me! :)

Enjoy these Happy Fantastic Party Pics!

Yum!!! Ben & Jerry's with a peanut butter cup doggie pie from PupCat Bakery.

The Party Crashers!!!

mmm... it does go well with the chicken

Party pooper!

Strange Bedfellows

God, this breaks my heart! This was taken a few hours after Toni ate Happy's bed. Toni ripped up the foam insert and all that remained was the cover. I couldn't decide if I would just throw away the cover or try to re-use it so I left the cover on the floor next to the trash. Poor little Happy missed her bed so much that I caught her cuddling up to the remains of what was once her dog bed. Sigh...

UPDATE: Yesterday I picked up a new bed for Happy courtesy of a gift card sent to her by her human "grandparents" in honor of her 18th birthday which is just 1 week away! Lets hope that Jaws, I mean Toni, doesn't sink her teeth into the new bed.
